Today, I took some scrap African Mahogany (what a nice thing to have. It’s like saying you have “traveler’s checks left over from your vacation !”), and re-did the false tenons for the display tower.
Rather than use templates, I just laid everything out on the stock, took two 3/8” passes with the dado stack, then ripped to length, cut the bottom at 3*, cut out the tenons, routed the chamfer, and lightly sanded the notches.
Here’s the result:
Now the question: Obviously, I can re-cut the wedges out of mahogany, too, but … personal preference … who thinks I should re-make the wedges, who thinks I should leave the wood pairing as it is, and … who recommends a different wood (other than the beetle-kill pine) for the wedges.
In other words, my wife is out of town, and I’m pretty useless at the artistic part of all of this.
Any thoughts ??
